Mission Statement

The Big Sur Food and Wine Festival is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization created to be a vehicle of support to the Big Sur community. Its intention is to stimulate the local economy and donate event proceeds to support local nonprofits that benefit Health, Safety, Education and Arts. In 2017 we have designated specific beneficiaries including a special road project in Palo Colorado and The Big Sur Fire & Storm Relief Fund.

Additionally, we are committing 100% of proceeds from all silent auctions to support fire relief & recovery for our neighbors in Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino Counties.

(Please take a look in the Beneficiaries tab for more information on our designated organizations / projects)
